The most important thing to prepare for a spray tan is to exfoliate thoroughly 24 hours beforehand paying particular attention to drier areas such as knees, elbows, heels and feet. This will remove dry skin and provide a new, smooth surface for your tan. Exfoliating helps to provide an even coverage and will lengthen the duration of the tan. You must always moisturise the day BEFORE your tan is to be applied, NEVER on the day.
We recommend that you have dark loose fitting clothing to put on after your session. Solution washes out of natural material very easily but tends to stain nylon and lycra materials. What you wear during your spray tan appointment is entirely your choice, many clients prefer to go completely nude to avoid tan lines but you can wear a bikini or the underwear of your choice. Your technician can provide you with disposable underwear if you require.
Follow these steps immediately after your spray tan. Remember you must leave your tan for a minimum of 8 hours or preferably overnight if possible before showering. This will allow your tan to develop fully.
Remember! When you shower you will see some colour wash off. Don’t worry! This is normal and is only the guide colour that your spray tan technician uses when she applies your tan. You will still be left with a beautiful golden tan.
